Fashion Internship in Iceland !

For the last week I have been doing my placement for Uni. I am working for a fashion designer in Iceland called Jet Korine and it has been wonderful. She has a shop called Gloria on Laugavegur and it is so amazing. The work has been very exciting and I will continue working there for the next 6 weeks. Mostly I have been in the studio sewing but I also had the chance to work in the shop and observe the whole process. The clothing are all natural and sustainable. It is so wonderful to work with these amazing materials! The studio is very small but gorgeous! I have never worked in such inspiring work place! The people I am working for is so creative and inspiring, everyday I am learning something new. Here are some of my photos on Instagram (larainwonderland90)IMG_20130604_154148 IMG_20130604_184832 IMG_20130605_160343 IMG_20130607_130208 IMG_20130607_163822 IMG_20130608_105952 IMG_20130608_110320 IMG_20130608_110551 IMG_20130608_112144 IMG_20130608_114419 IMG_20130608_114507 (1)IMG_20130608_114606IMG_20130608_115009 IMG_20130608_115106 IMG_20130608_115144 IMG_20130608_115309 IMG_20130608_115415 IMG_20130608_115931 IMG_20130608_120541 IMG_20130608_120803


Grey Reykjavik

I came across these amazing Icelandic photographers, on their facebook page they call themselves B.B.L. These photos are really dark and mysterious, some are kind a goth, even though that is not my style I really enjoy what they are doing. It is usually photos of Reykjavik city in the background. 


Tattoos are often their subject.




Star Wars in Iceland.


Amazing picture of the down town dock and the much-talked concert hall, “The Harp”


Down Town Reykjavik, kind a looks like doll houses.

It is Cold and Dark and Wonderful

I am back in Iceland for Christmas. It is very cold and the days are dark but I love it. It is not snowing but I am hoping to see a little bit of snow before I go back to England. These photos are taken at noon in my lovely countryside.

The first thing I did, when I got back home, was to visit one of my favorite shops in Reykjavík, called Aunt Frida. It is a vintage interior shop. It is really small but so outstanding. It is crammed with all kinds of treasures.



The house is really old so when you are walking around, exploring, the floor makes cracking noise and when you are downstairs the ceiling shakes if people are walking above, it kind of feels like the house is falling apart. I actually love that! It increases the whole vintage shopping experience.

I did buy something else, I went to the V&A museum in London few weeks ago, There was a necklace that I have not been able to stop thinking about, so I ordered it online and it looks great. I am really happy with it, so unique.
